Product description

Review

A thought provoking, subtle novel. Graham Minett explores with delicacy the aftershocks of this terrible event, not simply the media outrage at the time but the ongoing reverberations which span decades. The ending is tender and moving. I was left thinking about the crucial role played by simple human kindness in our lives; the devastation caused by its absence. Great stuff! -- Jane Rusbridge, author of Rook

The Hidden Legacy is a gripping read, cleverly weaving multiple narratives and time frames to give a disturbing insight into a troubled childhood and its repercussions . . . heartbreaking -- Juliet West, author of Before The Fall

I was gripped from page one by Graham Minett's debut thriller. He approaches a tough subject with remarkable skill and sensitivity. I loved it. ― Fleur Smithwick, author of How To Make A Friend

A very tidy and thoughtful debut thriller -- Sharon Wheeler ― The Times Higher Education Published On: 2016-05-19

Book ALERT time! The Hidden Legacy is one to watch out for, when it hits the shops! If you are a fan of beautifully written and thought provoking mysteries, look no further. The Hidden Legacy is a rather slow burning and gripping drama, with long kept secrets at its heart ― Northern Crime Review Book Blog

I would recommend it for a fabulous read ― Tracy Shepard Book Blog

His was a fascinating book, and Minett has written an outstanding debut novel in The Hidden Legacy ― Nudge Books

Another writer more interested in why than who is G. J. Minett, who opens his first novel, The Hidden Legacy, with an horrific murder committed by a young boy at school in 1966...This is an intriguing and ultimately moving novel ― Book Oxygen

I loved the number of questions and mysteries raised by this book, as two seemingly unrelated characters are slowly brought together following a carefully pieced together investigation. I think the writing style perfectly suited the genre and I was gradually pulled in further as the novel continued. This is one of my favourite mysteries of the year, and I'm sorry I waited so long to read it. I would definitely recommend this book if you can get your hands on it, as it offers a thriller with a human twist that really makes you contemplate how closely crime is related to daily life ― Book Moods Reviews

Minett has created a cast of interesting characters and there is satisfaction in watching them discover the untruths and half-truths handed down through generations. Serious issues - child abuse, bullying, trial by media, violence, divorce, the bond between parent and child - are sensitively explored -- Sarah Gilmartin ― The Irish Times

About the Author

G.J. Minett studied at Cambridge and then spent many years as a teacher of foreign languages. He studied for an MA in Creative Writing at the University of Chichester, and won the 2010 Chapter One Prize for unpublished novels with the opening chapter of The Hidden Legacy.
